TypeError: descriptor 'isdigit' requires a 'str' object but received a 'unicode'

edited March 2013 in Egg-Bot
I had this error (full quote at the end of this message). I found the following thread in the old forum:

I had that problem too. At the end of layer one (before going back into the beginning position) everything stopped. No possibility to pause or reset :-/

I think I found what caused the error. I had named the next layer "grĂ¼n" (green in german). Seems like one of the software parts of the whole system does not like Umlauts, so beware of naming your layers with non-ASCII fonts!

After deleting all those umlauts everything went fine! 

HTH, Patric
